No matter where you put one, mirrors are an easy way to reflect light, make a space look bigger, and open up a room. Here are some decorating ideas for using them in your house.
- Use Long/whole mirrors in which you can see yourself from head to toe. This gives you a sense of completeness whenever you see yourself.
- Hang mirrors to bring in beautiful views of nature from the outdoors, amplifying them and activating Nature’s energy indoors.
- Use mirrors where they’ll add light and movement to your space. For instance a large mirror in a long dark hallway, will draw energy down the hall, helping it circulate throughout your home.
- Hang a mirror near your entryway, to give you a positive glimpse of yourself on your way out the door.
- Place a mirror against the wall that defines a missing Bagua area, to visually expand the space and fill in the missing area.
Use Large Mirrors in tiny rooms.
A large mirror in a small room creates the illusion of depth, so don’t be scared to go big. A mirror put in a bathroom will expand the view avoiding a confined space feeling. Placing a big mirror on the wall above a dining room table to reflect the chandelier, or installing a mirror across from a beloved piece of artwork. And, if you’re really feeling adventurous, you can try something even larger.
Having timber framed mirrors will not only add a natural look to your interior but it will also compliment other wooden furniture as well. With many timber designs and shapes available you will never run out of options or styles. Use the natural grain of the wood to encourage a lively feel around you.
DON’T place mirrors anywhere around your home.
It might be tempting to hang up a mirror to cover empty wall space, but make sure it’s reflecting something nice and which is worth looking at. The worst thing is to hang mirrors so they’re reflecting random things in your home for example, you’d never want to place a mirror in a spot where it could reflect a pile of clutter, or even an unattractive piece of furniture. You want a mirror to reflect a nice view or bounce light.
Bring in the Nature
Placing a mirror to bring in the exterior will help bring in positive energy. Not only this positioning will amplify light but it will extend the view as well. With this type of setting it is important to avoid glare especially the timings of sunset and sunrise.
- DON’T go overboard with mirrors in the kitchen and bedroom.
Mirrors are not necessary in a kitchen. It can still pose a problem such as water marks so it would need constant maintenance. Decoration with mirrors is not totally against the idea of a mirrored backsplash.
- DON’T use mirrors on ceilings.
This might seem obvious a mirror on a ceiling is very tacky this something you’d see in a cheap motel, or in some place which is old and probably out of use.
- DON’T use mirror on entry
Don’t hang a mirror so it reflects you within 5 feet of entering your home. This will cause your Chi energy to bounce right back out the door.
- DON’T hang mirrors with distorted or antiqued surfaces
Over time as you see yourself in them, you will come to feel distorted or prematurely aged yourself.
Don’t hang a mirror too high or too low. It must be at a height where you can perfectly see the yourself and your aura: at least your entire head and shoulders, and those of anyone with whom you share your home.
